Detective Conan Movie Novelization

Sunflowers of Inferno is the 19th movie in the Detective Conan franchise. It was released in Japan on April 18, 2015.





An auction house in a Manhattan skyscraper in New York shows off the star piece of the night's auction: 'Sunflowers' by Vincent Van Gogh. The painting is one of the series painted in Arles, the South of France, by the artist adored by Japan. Until recently, there were thought to be seven paintings in the series, but last year, a new painting was freshly discovered in an old house in Arles, and its composition and colors are an exact match for the second that once resided in Ashiya, Japan. But surprisingly, art experts conclude that this painting is real. The Ashiya version owned by Koyata Yamamoto, a real life wealthy businessman, was supposedly destroyed by the fires of war, so does this mean that one of the two was a reproduction produced by Van Gogh himself? Then, the one on auction was bought at a record-breaking price by none other than Jirokichi Suzuki.

Jirokichi immediately opens a press conference, announcing that he will collect all seven paintings scattered around the world, and exhibit them as 'The Sunflowers Admired by Japan' in the Suzuki Financial Group's 'Lake Rock Museum' in Shinjuku. Conan and the Detective Boys also attentively watch the conference from the TV in Professor Agasa's house. Jirokichi states he has already contacted the owners around the world, and gained permission for exhibiting them, in exchange for furnishing them with the perfect security, preservation, and transport measures. Jirokichi lauds the specialists he has gathered to fulfill his side of the bargain, the 'Seven Samurai', and invites them on stage. But his laughter is cut short when a card flies through the air and slices into the stage. It was a heist notice with the logo of Kaitou Kid: a Kid Card. Kid then shows himself, pointing his card gun at the crowd, inciting panic and fleeing the scene. But he is pursued by one of the Seven Samurai, Detective Charlie, a security professional. However, when trapped in a corner of the skyscraper, Kid lets off a flash bomb, breaking the window and vanishing into the night sky.

A special plane decorated as the 'Sunflowers Jet' would carry the painting to Japan, along with Jirokichi, Sonoko, the Samurai, and as a special guest, a high-school detective who offered his help in the case: Shinichi Kudo. But just as the jet approaches Haneda Airport, the wall of the cargo hold explodes, the door is blown away, and the painting is carried away into the sky. The engines also end up exploding in the blast, and Sonoko and the others let out desperate screams as the jet goes into freefall. Meanwhile, the 7th Samurai, Kogoro Mori, is waiting with Ran and the others at Haneda Airport for the plane's arrival. But when they spot the plane, it is out of control and having difficulty making a landing. Ran is worried about Sonoko and the others aboard the plane. But then Kid is seen flying through the skies, painting in hand. As emergency vehicles gather around the barely-landed plane, Conan spies Kid. He runs through the airport trying to pursue him, but Kid only sneers and flies away. However, Conan successfully locates the painting Kid had hidden. The Samurai quickly examine it and attest that the painting is fine.

Location: Haneda Airport
Suspects: Natsumi Miyadai, Koji Azuma, Keiko Anderson, Kumiko Kishi, Taizo Ishimine, and Kaitou Kid

Several days later, Jirokichi invites the Seven Samurai to a conference to plan what counter-measures they can take against Kid. The owners of the other paintings had also become reluctant in loaning him their paintings. That morning, Conan, Agasa, and the Detective Boys head to the Sompo Japan Nipponkoa Museum of Art, to see the 5th painting. Just after Conan leaves, Kogoro receives another notice from Kid. The Samurai decode it and find that the notice states that he will steal the 5th painting tonight. Conan, Haibara, and the others are viewing the 5th painting together with an old woman named Umeno, said to visit and view the painting every day, when Jirokichi, Kogoro, Inspector Nakamori, and the others arrive. Conan quickly realizes a case is unfolding and joins up with them. They decide that they should move the painting to a safe place before night comes, and the painting is to be wrapped up under the instructions of the Seven Samurai. However, Kid had already infiltrated the staff, and steals the painting.

However, even Conan begins to wonder about Kid's escalating crimes which have come to endanger many lives.

I’ll hand over the Sunflowers I just took for a reasonable amount of ten billion yen. I’ll see you in room 1412 in the Touto Plaza Hotel. Bring old bills and lay them out on the bed. If you can’t, I won’t make the deal.

Victim: Jirokichi Suzuki
Suspects: Kaitou Kid?

With Kid's motives as yet a mystery, the exhibition of the Seven Sunflowers at Lake Rock Museum meets its opening day. The most excited to see the exhibition are the Detective Boys, Conan, Ran, and Sonoko. Just as they begin to view the paintings, Conan spots a Kid Card. The enigmatic message could not be deciphered by even the Seven Samurai, but its presence attests that Kid is already within the museum. Jirokichi quickly orders to evacuate the museum goers and staff, to trap Kid inside the museum. However, he seems to have anticipated this turn of events, and blows up the electric room, leaving the museum in a blackout.

Someone pour chemical to blows up the electric room into blackout?

Then, a great fire also breaks out, leaving Jirokichi and the others no option but to send the paintings to their storage room, and evacuate to a special room outside. But, the 2nd and 5th painting could not be collected, and the inferno closes in on them. The only people remaining in Lake Rock Museum are a great detective, a great phantom thief, and...?!


  • Resolution[edit]


    Oh! Rival (オー!リバル Ō! Ribaru?), by Porno Graffiti.


    • The movie grossed 4.48 billion yen.
    • The character design for Natsumi Miyadai is the same Chihiro Ohgi's in The Super Narrow Shop Crime Scene.
    • Sky Japan, the airline whose Flight 865 was involved in a murder in Magician of the Silver Sky reappeared in this film, with some of its plane departing Haneda Airport and one of the plane exploded as a result of collision with the Sunflower Jet.
    • A simple copy of the painting 'Still Life: Vase with Twelve Sunflowers' of Van Gogh appeared first in The Girl from the Black Organization and the University Professor Murder Case, like one of his 'Cafe Terrace at Night' in The Private Eyes' Requiem.
    • During the scene where the culprit (as a black figure) is shown blowing up the electric room, the watchers can already tell who that is from his/her walkie-talkie earpiece. Among the Seven Samurais, who are using those for communication, only Natsumi Miyadai has her earpiece on the left ear like the culprit. Furthermore, it is also her the laptop with five sunflower paintings drawings and the word "Vincent", where Jii discovers the phosphine used by the culprit, while Kishi's doesn't have it.
    • Koji Azuma car drive in Arles is a 1980 Gray Peugeot 505 [551A].
